Default Night Sight / Front sight?

Ok I need some Tritium Night Sights. Does any one know if the Meprolight front sight will fit a 195? Their description says Pn# 30921 fits 173 series only?

I thought all the pre 580 front sights were the same? Am I wrong / will the 173 sight fit my 195? BTW....WTH is a 173? Never heard of that series?

If not, does any one have a suggestion for a front night sight for my 195 Ranch rifle?

The new guns have thicker barrels so the older sites won't interchange. Some new models have the older skinny barrels and they will work. I have never heard of 173, maybe they meant 183.
